Diet Chicken Wings of Fire Recipe

A Delicious Chicken Wing Recipe for Your Diet Plan

Another warm day and I'm not really feeling like Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's just TOO warm.

When lunch rolled around, we popped some Wings of Fire into the oven - perhaps a bit of our brains suffering from the heat as we were actually adding more heat in our lives via the trusty oven.

Nonetheless, the Wings of Fire turned out quite lovely and yes, very low calorie. So if you're dieting and if you enjoy hot wings - yes you can still invite them into your weight loss plan. Here's how...

Ingredients for Diet Wings of Fire

6-8 chicken wings


1 Tablespoon of Ground Chili Powder
1 Teaspoon of Ground Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper


1/2 Teaspoon of Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Salt

How to Prepare Diet Wings of Fire

If you are short on time, you can substitute the spices with 1 package of your favorite buffalo wing seasoning mix.

A bit of cooking spray and foil will go a long way in shortening clean-up time.

Remove the wing tips and cut the drumette free of the upper wing portion. You should now have 12 - 16 pieces of chicken.

Rinse thoroughly then CAREFULLY remove as much skin as possible. Removing the skin removes fat and calories but be forewarned that it's not an easy task but it sure is worth your efforts.

However, if you must have the skin left on the wings, we have posted the nutritional and caloric values below based on the roasted or grilled version.

Using our low calorie recipe, 1 uncooked wing with skin contains about 100 calories and 9 dietary fat grams. 1 uncooked wing with the skin removed contains about 37 calories and 1.03 fat grams.

Back to the recipe instructions... Place washed wing pieces into deep bowl and coat with the seasonings or use a  plastic 1 gallon bag. Seal and shake.

Bake according to directions on seasoning package and serve with light dressing.
